I have just attended the official opening of the newly refurbished maternity Unit. It is a very splendid place and cost about £0.5 million. It features a new high dependency Unit and a high dependency area with birthing pool. Additionally a new education facility was opened for the unit at the same time. This will allow top class training within the unit itself. When the NHS as a whole and the Royal Surrey itself are under great financial pressure it is heartening to see they are still managing to invest.
